Removal of Pigmented Lesions (age spots)

Almost everyone has a pigmented lesion of some type. These areas of the skin contain especially high concentrations of melanin and are typically caused by an excess of pigment commonly due to sun exposure, aging or congenital factors. Pigmented lesions vary widely in size, shape and depth. Some are no bigger than a fingertip or even a pinhead, while others may be as large as a hand and occur in such conspicuous places as the face, neck or arms.

Depending on skin tone, many of these conditions can be selectively treated with laser. The most commonly treated conditions are solar lentigines (also known as age spots, liver spots or sun spots), melasma, café au lait birthmarks, and freckles.

Is Laser Treatment Safe?

Lasers have been used successfully in hundreds of thousands of treatments. Lasers treatments performed properly, by a trained physician, are safe and effective. There are many benefits to laser surgery including no needles for most patients, more effective lesion removal, and less risk of scarring.

Does the treatment hurt?

Some patients say they feel a slight sting, like the snap of a rubber band on the skin, followed by the feeling of sunburn. Many treatments do not require anesthetics. However, some patient feels more comfortable with a local numbing agent like ice or an anesthetic cream.

How Many Treatments Are Required?

This depends on the size, location, depth and color of your lesion. Age spots generally do well with one or two treatments, while darker or deeper birthmarks may require additional treatments. Treatments should be placed about 4 weeks apart to allow your body to remove the maximum amount of pigment cells. You will continue to see a lightening of your lesion after each treatment as your body disposes of the pigment cells.

How long does it take to treat pigment spots with Alexandrite laser?

The procedure on the area of the face and neck takes around 3-10 minutes, bigger areas takes 10 – 15 minutes.

How will the skin look after the procedure?

Pigmented lesions may become darker for a few days after the procedure and will become lighter or disappear completely in 5 – 7 days. Hygiene products and make – up can be used as usual the next day after the procedure.

After the procedure is completed, the doctor will explain how the skin should be taken care of at home.
